Abstract

The chapter outlines three existing paradigms about the relationship of religion to modern societies: the secularisation paradigm, the persistence paradigm, and the separation paradigm. It then introduces and defends a new paradigm, namely the cultural paradigm. According to this paradigm religious belief is a product of religious socialisation and belonging.
